Simplifying and Staying Focused

I seriously need to learn some budgeting skills! I am so bad at budgeting my time and my money. I am planning (or at least trying to plan) a schedule that will bring some semblance of order to our lives and allow time for all the things that I need and want to accomplish. I can't decide if I should plan a weekly rotation, daily rotation or what? Here is my to do list:

homeschool
cooking
cleaning
household organizing
sewing & crafts
blogging & other computer stuff
dr's appointments & field trips
grocery shopping & other errands
thrift shopping & yard sales

So how do I organize it all? I am reading tips on scheduling over at http://oldfashionedhomemaking.com/
I am particularly focusing on this post right now http://oldfashionedhomemaking.com/2006/08/23/simplifying-your-life-with-unique-scheduling.aspx
Now I just have to decide which option works best for us. This is the hardest part for me I think. Argh! If I could just pick one already and then stick to it! Ask me where some of my kids get their ADD tendencies from?

Oh mylanta! What a timely post for me. I am in desperate need of scheduling. I am all for relaxed, but it's TOO relaxed at my house!

I noticed you on my "fan" section thingy and stopped by. VERY cool blog!
